Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 6

4 Hass avocados, diced
2 Tablespoon(s) Dry Sherry
1 Cup(s) superfine sugar
1 Cup(s) Heavy cream
6 Pink Meringue Shells
Recipe included
Toasted pumpkin seeds
coarsely ground for
garnish optional
Blackberries for garnish
Unsalted butter, for
1 Cup(s) Egg whites, 5-6 eggs
1 Liquid red food colouring
1 Cup(s) Granulated Sugar
2 Cup(s) Confectioner's sugar, Confectioner's sugar
Press avocados through a sieve into a large bowl, using a rubber
spatula. Add sherry and 1/2 cup sugar. Stir to combine. Whip heavy
cream with remaining 1/2 cup sugar until soft peaks form. Fold whipped
cream into avocado mixture. Divide between meringue shells. Top with
one or more garnishes, if desired. Pink Meringue Shells: (makes 8-10)
Heat oven to 200 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper,
and lightly butter. Place egg whites in the bowl of electric mixer
with the whisk attachment. Beat on medium speed until soft peaks begin
to form. Add food coloring. Gradually add granulated sugar, and beat
until stiff, but not dry. Slowly add confectioners' sugar, and fold in
with a rubber spatula. Transfer meringue mixture to a pastry bag
fitted with a #6 large star tip. Pipe the meringue into 3-inch round
disks. Then pipe two layers of meringue around the edges of each disk
to form a shell. Transfer to oven, and bake until dry, about 1 1/2 to
2 hours. Remove from oven, and carefully separate the meringue shells
from the parchment paper, and cool on a wire rack. NOTES : The
attractive combinations of colors and textures makes this a rather
romantic dessert. In fact, the Aztecs considered the avocado a sacred
fruit possessing mystical romantic properties. Recipe by: Posted to recipelu-digest by "Valerie
